My favorite Paleo vegan pecan pie recipe that’s completely gluten free, dairy free, and a fourth of the sugar that traditional pecan pie has, yet tastes like the classic! Made with a vegan Paleo pie crust and simple ingredients, it’s the best pecan pie you’ll ever make!



Paleo Vegan Pecan Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseed with 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. First prepare the pie crust according to the vegan flaky pie crust recipe. You will need to par-bake it.
  2. Once the pie crust is par-baked, begin to make the filling.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350F. While the oven is preheating, lay the pecan halves onto a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
  4. Place the pecan halves into the oven to toast for 7 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from the oven and let cool. Keep the oven on at 350F.
  5. In a medium saucepan, combine the coconut milk, vanilla, coconut sugar, arrowroot powder, and maple syrup together until the coconut sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and pour the mixture into a large bowl.
  6. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes, then add in the flaxseed mixture, and mix together. Stir until the mixture is completely mixed. Set aside.
  7. Remove the pie crust from the fridge, and place pecan halves into the middle of the raw crust.
  8. Pour mixture over pecan halves, and arrange the pecan halves if you desire. 
  9. Bake the pie for 30 minutes with crust covered with tinfoil or a pie crust shield around the pie crust edges. Then remove the pie shield and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the filling has set.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 hours before serving.
